Health & Wellbeing Minor

What is a health and wellbeing minor?
"Understood as more than the absence of disease, the concept of health and wellbeing combines elements of genetic, biological, psychological, behavioral and social practices and processes.  In this one-of-a-kind minor, students are introduced to health and wellbeing through this wide spectrum of topics.

The courses in this program are designed to assist students in obtaining the scientific knowledge related to health and wellbeing to promote intelligent decision-making. It also amplifies the curriculum for students who wish to work in the health or mental health professions, or hope to be engaged in public policy related to health and well-being."
Students enrolled in the minor will have access to classes in the Curry School of Education, the College, the School of Medicine, the School of Nursing, the School of Architecture, and the Batten School of Leadership & Public Policy. Course topics include:
  • Nutrition
  • Exercise
  • Mindfulness
  • Healthy environment
  • Psychology
  • Public Health Policy
  • More!
Applications for admission into the minor are due on December 6. Applicants accepted into the minor will be notifed January 6, 2017.
